The Art with Heart Team ladies are selecting their favourite colour combinations to share with you tonight. Choosing the right colour scheme can be essential to your design and with Stampin’ Up!’s stunning collection, there are 50 colours to choose from. There’s sure to be some combinations that work really well together and you can take inspiration from.
Now sit back and enjoy some time out of your day to cruise through our blog hop and soak up some colour explosion eye candy!
My Favourite Colour Combination
When I tried to decide what my favourite colour combination was I realised I really love monochrome cards that use just 2 colours together, usually a neutral colour (such as whisper white, very vanilla, crumb cake, smoky slate, basic black or one of the metallic papers) with one other colour. I mainly use a lot of crumb cake and whisper white (and I really do love using these 2 colours together on their own) but today I’ve decided to make a card that uses another of my all time favourite colour combinations: navy and white.
Navy and white always looks classic, crisp, cool, clean and elegant. It is a timeless colour combination that works well for both male and female cards and I’ve used it today to make a Christmas card with the new Carols of Christmas bundle.
You can order the “Carols for Christmas” bundle from the 1st August, one month ahead of the Holiday catalogue release date…or you can order it right now if you are a demonstrator or decide to join up as a demonstrator.
The beautiful background DSP in this card is from a non-christmas set, Naturally Eclectic, but it works perfectly with this Christmas card and looks to me like gently falling snow. The frame is cut using card builder framelits that are part of the Carols of Christmas bundle.
The sentiment is from “Oh, What Fun” stamp set and stamped onto whisper white and night of navy card stock, then cut out using the oval stitched shape framelits. The die cut trees and reindeer fitted perfectly around the curve of the stitched shape oval and I layered the deer on top of the trees with Stampin’ dimensionals to provide depth and contrast.
This gorgeous Night of Navy crinkled seam binding ribbon makes the softest bows…here I layered it to the card on top of a bow made out of mini sequin trim in sliver, topped with a rhinestone basic jewel.
For Christmas I’d like to also make a version of this card using some of my other favourite colour combinations, such as real red and whisper white, soft sky and whisper white, and of course my other very favourite colour combination…crumb cake, whisper white and gold or copper foil paper!
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you has as much fun reading my blog as I had creating it.
